Thanks! I should start getting even better photos, a 2x adapter for my Camera just arrived today! Now it has a total reach of 1600mm!

Yes! However, you will lose two stops of light, making you minimum aperture two stops lower, meaning more high ISOs, and more camera shake. However, in good light, it should help more than hurt.

Dang! Do you have an 800mm lens or is that with a crop body effective range?

Nope. 400mm lens with a 2x is 800mm, but his camera is a micro four thirds camera, so that also doubles the length of the lens, making 800 to 1600. The only downside to MFT cameras is that they have reduced image quality and more noise. But, @Aidan Bs seems to be great.( it may depend on the lighting. )

Yes, the lighting makes a HUGE difference with my image quality. Luckily, here in Sacramento my biggest issue is usually too much light, as it is very sunny almost every day! The heat shimmer has ruined so many of my photos over the past few months.  

Also, my camera has great vibration reduction, so I haven't had much of an issue.

Wow.  Is that mostly through the quiz or just going through photos on the homepage?  I mostly do the latter...

Mostly the latter, but once in a while I'll go through Michigan's recently uploaded photos and look for misidentifictions and cool photos. Not so much of that now because of school though.
